We had such a good Thanksgiving with our family! For us it was actually Thanksgiving all week. We started our holiday last Sunday in Hope for my dad's side of the family's Thanksgiving. It was so much fun. We had an amazing meal! Coop's favorite was Aunt Debbie's mashed potatoes. That's all he ate but he probably ate 2-3 helpings. It was so funny. He kept saying "mo pease" (translation..more please). LOL! After we ate, all he kiddos went outside and played football, while us grownups sat around and moaned and groaned about how full we were :)
Cooper had a blast playing football with Layne
I see the pros in his future ;)
Then, my sister and I decided we needed a good picture of all of our kids so we forced them to pose and smile for lots and lots of pictures. They were all good sports about it, especially Drake, who is 16 now! Gosh, where has the time gone!
Our handsome men...Drake, Layne, Kaleb, and Cooper.
Poor Drake was sooo over it by this point! LOL!
Then, my cousin Nicki's kiddos, Collin and Ava, got in on the action. I swear Collin is one of the funniest kids I have ever been around. You can definitely tell he is a ham by these pictures!
Then we got Papaw in on the action..
Cooper kept pointing to the sky and saying "moon!"
So everyone else decided to look up too! LOL!
Me, my sister, and my handsome daddy!
On Wednesday, we did Thanksgiving with Poppa, Nana, Aunt Brooke, Uncle Shawn, and the girls. We had a relaxing night and had a nontraditional meal of pizza and it was perfect! After dinner we had a dance party in the shop. Cooper broke it down, Micah Claire break danced, and Kinley ran in circles and shook her hiney. It was great entertainment!
Cooper and Poppa
Future diva in the making!
On Thursday, we went to Aunt Cindy's and celebrated Thanksgiving with Eric's mom's side of the family. Again, we stuffed our face. Mister coop found a new food that he fell in love with...cheese ball. That's all he would eat after taking one bite!
Loving some cheese ball!
He was loving Aunt Cin's piano
Later that day we went to my mom's and had Thanksgiving with my mom's side of the family. I was so glad my brother, Amanda, and the girls were able to come in. They live almost 4 hours away so we don't get to see them as much as we would like to. It amazes me every time I see them how much Kiya and Hunter have grown!
What a trio!
I wanted a good picture of the two of us but he wasn't cooperating :)
He loves to suck on those fingers!
I put up my Christmas decorations last weekend but I waited till Thanksgiving night to turn the lights on.
Here is what our tree looks like from the outside looking in. I love that I have a big window to display it!
Mister Coop was in awe at the lights!
I actually do have presents and I tried to put them under the tree but Cooper made a beeline for them and was ready to unwrap them so I had to put them up. So I will have a bare tree until Santa comes! :)
Look at that belly! :)
